At LibriVox we can only record books that are in the Public domain in the USA - which are mailly under present rules those published before 1923. Anne Frank is at the moment the subject of a copyright dispute even in the EU - the estate of the father is claimng rights because she did not write the book , he edited it and he didn't die till the 1970's . If they win even death plus 70 years countries will bot have it PD till the 2040's

I was born in 1959. I'll try to be around in 2040, but no promises.

I didn't think about copyright laws. and the links that Jeff posted for me was something else completely different.

Thanks Librivoxbooks and especially to the volunteers who make it all possible.

Mostly written after 1922 so not PD in the USA.
The estate pushes it's rights and as she isn't PD in the EU for about 30 years they contest the 1 or 2 she wrote before 1923
So no Agatha Christie from us
It's a pretty safe bet that if we don't have a well known author it's because we can't use it
